MILAN – Inter are first in the standings, on a par with Juventus, against all odds because the bianconeri have a much deeper squad. Antonio Conte is carrying out an authentic sports miracle and for this reason he has asked his management for a great effort in this transfer window.
Conte immediately wants Vidal and Eriksen to reinforce a midfield where in the last few games players like Gagliardini and Borja Valero have played. Conte believes he must grow a lot in this area of the pitch and Vidal and Eriksen would make the Nerazzurri midfield one of the strongest in Europe.
Inter have been pressing on Vidal since last summer but yesterday his agent Fernando Felicevich was in Milan to speak with the Nerazzurri manager. Vidal has a contract with Barcelona until 2022 and is not considered among the transferable by the Blaugrana club. To take it, the Nerazzurri would have to present a monstrous offer to the Catalans and also hope for some over-the-top attitude from the Chilean. Only when these two conditions occur, Vidal could immediately arrive at Conte.
Less complicated situation for Eriksen. The Dane will leave Tottenham at the end of the season on a free transfer but Inter must try to avoid this in order to burn wide competition. Everyone wants to take Eriksen at the end of the season to pay nothing at Tottenham but in this case Inter should deal with the richest clubs in Europe. Instead buying it immediately, which nobody wants to do, could burn all the other teams interested in the player.
The problem is that Tottenham shoots high. Do you want Eriksen right away? You have to shell out twenty million euros. Inter does not consider this request reasonable and is negotiating with the English club to take it back. Also because Tottenham has every interest in cashing in something now rather than nothing at the end of the season.
